Howard McKim

Its hard to talk about serious kayak fishing without the name Howard McKim.  After giving up his spots on the beaches and jetties, McKim took up kayak angling in 1996 and hasn't looked back.  Just a few years later, in 2003, McKim started Ketchian Kayak Company in the heart of salmon country.  Here he offers kayak based eco-tours and kayak angling chargers.  They'll pick you up, take you to one of their kayaks, and get you on the fish.  From four hours tours, to multi-day remote fishing trips, McKim and Ketchikan Kayak will surely not disappoint!

A Great Kayak Fishing story

Last week we posted the story about Dave Lamoureux and his 157lb Bluefin Tuna caught in Provincetown from his SINK (sit in Kayak). This is truly an awesome kayak fishing story of how big accomplishments can come from such a small boat. Lamoureux who was attempting to beat the bluefin tuna record came up short by about 30 pounds but his 157lb tuna still set the record of a bluefin caught from a kayak. The giant fish took Lamoureux for a “sleigh ride” for about 3 hours which put him a good two miles off shore. As I was searching the web this morning I came across the video and wanted to share with all of you.

PROVINCETOWN — After a Nantucket sleigh ride off Race Point, Dave Lamoureux landed a 157-pound bluefin tuna yesterday — from his kayak.

"I fought it for about three hours," Lamoureux said. "It probably took another hour to paddle back in."
